I spent a good portion of yesterday trimming. I tell you what, it takes a while, and is quite monotonous, but there is nothing like a pile of perfect HST's. They just make piecing a breeze :) And then you get the bonus of the super happy trim pile. Someone wrote a while back that they keep their trim in jars as decor in their sewing room. What a fun idea. I think I need to be on the look out for some cute glass containers :) I can't show the project these HST's will go in for a bit but anyone want to venture a guess as to what line I was using in my HST's?? Well make it fun and the first per to guess it right will get a pattern of their choice :) EDIT - First Comment and it was right, Congrats Cindy, it is Daydream by Kate Spain ;)
Oh and I had to share this fun little shot from my trimming session. Josie was in my sewing room playing behind me while I trimmed away. I thought she was playing with her toys but upon turning around I found that she would rather play with my thread cones. Snap Shot time!! (and please forgive the horrible flash on the floor, once I took one shot she wasn't willing to not look at the camera ;) I asked her what she was making and she said a train. I tried to join in the train building but she was rather particular about what color order the cones were in and preferred me to just watch. So stinking cute!!!
Thanks for popping in today and have a Happy Quilting Day!!
